11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My sisters new handbag on: July 09, 2010 11:01:00 PM
My sister wanted a handbag for birthday present. I went totally blank for ideas, couldn't come up with any thing. The only thing I knew was that she wanted my special handles. I really wanted to make something special and since my sister and I don't have quite same taste when it comes to handbags it was really difficult. She can also be quite picky... Roll Eyes Wink I also had very much going on at work and at home so it took almost a year before I finally finished this handbag. Judging by the look at her face when she got it I really think she meant it when she said that she loves it. One guilty conscience less.
The fabric is from Hilco and is a wool fabric bonded together with some sort of plastic, gives the fabric a nice sparkly effect. The hexagon opening and the feets are from U-handbag.
I hope you enjoyed!

12  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Summer sweater on: June 16, 2010 01:41:57 PM
It feels like an eternity since I showed something here. Have not sewn so much last semester since I have struggled to lose weight. Soon I have reached my weight goal so now I have started construct patterns for my new dimensions. This is the first attempt with a sweatshirt pattern for knitted fabric. I'm really pleased with the outcome and I think it will be a real summer favorite ....
Feels good to be back on track, thanks for looking!
13  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Summer party T-shirt on: June 21, 2009 01:03:14 PM
Hello again!

Although our summer have started with rain, rain and some more rain I hope I will find some more time to use this very comfy t-shirt. I made it for the summer party at my work, the theme was "summer nice". As usual I'm always starts in the last minute. I constructed the pattern and sew it the evening before the party....  Roll Eyes It's the first time I have constructed a drape but I think it was quite easy actually. I'm pleased with the result and I'm glad that I used this fabric for this t-shirt instead for the one I made a experiment of before https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=300518.msg3430334#msg3430334

I finally have taken the time to construct a pattern from scratch. Before I have used old patterns that I have remade. If I hade more fabric i might have made it a littel bit longer, but I had to use another fabric to be able too sew the hem proper.

I quickly made a piece of jewellery from a scratch and the shoes I just recived from USA matches perfectly.

15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / I need advice on an experiment t-shirt on: April 10, 2009 12:28:19 PM
I have experiment on a t-shirt that I would like to have your opinion on. Saw a similar t-shirt on a colleague, but she and I are totally different in the body, she is little and petit and that is one thing you can't accuse me of;)

This is a prototype since I have plans on sewing it in a more expensive wool tricot which is patterned. I do not want to cut something in that fabric before I hear what other people think about the model on me.

Do you think the model works for me? Do I look big or does it make me slimmer? Does it look weird, funny or something else?

The dark fabric might make seams invisible on the picture. But it's raglan sleeves and the sleeves is joined in the side seam all the way down except for a small hole where belt comes out. In the original, it is a belt that is the same fabric as the actual shirt, but I thought it was fun to have somethin contrasting.

From the side

Here is a picture of the fabric, as you can see I'm chosing between to different colurs.

Please let me know what you think!
16  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / A handbag with "bounce" in on: April 07, 2009 10:54:42 PM
Finally, I have taken my time to order stuff from U-handbag.com (a place I for sure will visit again). My first project was the Big Bobble frame. I wanted a fabric that could handle the frame, so a sharp pink patterned fabric I thought should work well. I also wanted to have a little "bounce" in the bag so I laminated the fabric with decorative rubber, feels almost like thin neoprene. I lined with a brown fabric and made a small pocket for the bus card.

Thanks for looking!
17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Whirling hat from a old washed wool sweater (with pattern) on: March 22, 2009 01:41:53 PM
A sweater was washed a littel to warm and since it was my favorite sweater I just couldn't throw it away. So after some dummies made of old t-shirts it turned out to a whirling hat that really have become my favorit. I even liked more than the sweater Wink

I added a flower with reflector fabric

From above

And here is the pattern (in Swedish and English) if any one would like to try to make one.

Hope you like Cheesy
18  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / A transform of a terrible couch on: March 22, 2009 05:35:33 AM
Our sofa has seen pretty bad out for a while, so bad that you just don't want to invite people home. Had a maternity weekend when we (90% I) made a new cover for the couch. We also to bought new pillows (didn't have the time to sew).

Here is the result:

Thanks for looking!
19  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / A yellow experiment, a comfy dress on: February 08, 2009 10:39:42 AM
I don't know why i bought this fabric. I both like it and don't like it, hard to explain. Any way I hade to do something with it so I thought I would try a experiment. A while ago i made this ball dress (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=218303.msg2348749#msg2348749) that I really think fit me well but I whant to try it in a knit. So I just put the scissor in the fabric and hoped for the best.

The pattern relly work fine for knits to, but skip the seamallowens (you might even go down one size) to compensate for the strech.

The dress i very comfy and I think I will wear it alot at home hot summer days. But I dont think I will wear it in public so mutch.

20  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Rebecca - a bra for us with great boobs on: January 31, 2009 11:09:53 PM
I have finally found a pattern that i just love. It's from Sewy and it's called Rebecca. The pattern comes i a lot of sizes from 30 B-H to 54 A-C. I really like how it supports from the side and makes the boobs get a great form. I really recomend it.
I have used ordinary swimsuit fabric but I have two layers of powernet under for the support. The lace is from a outletstore here in Sweden.

Thanks for looking!
